Far from worrying about the onset of war, the spring of 1938 was a golden, glamorous life, far removed from politics or conflict, and Coco Chanel was determined to live it to the fullest. But this wildly seductive world gave way to the horrors of evacuation and the displacement of thousands of families during World War II, and as the author of The Husband Hunters relates here, Chanel was prepared to do anything to ride it out—including take a German lover. Delving into the world of the Cote d'Azur elite, the cast here includes Winston Churchill, Salvador Dalí, Edith Wharton, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
